WATCH: Georgia football, 'Make-a-Wish' bring TE's dream to life

By Mike Singer | CBSSports.com

The University of Georgia, in partnering with the Make-a-Wish foundation, welcomed one special honorary tight end at their practice last Friday.

Joseph Liguori, sporting a red No. 8 Bulldogs practice jersey, had wanted to play for Georgia since he was five years old. Head coach Mark Richt, TE coach John Lilly, and numerous players made that dream come true. It's one thing for the coaches to grant that wish, but the players, as you can see in the video, embraced Liguori.

Richt had one final order before the last play of practice.

“If he happens to get in the end zone, I want a celebration like we've never seen at the University of Georgia.”

And don't forget the stunt the Dawgs pulled against Florida in 2007.
